2011 Oscar Predictions

2011 Oscar Predictions

These are my predictions for the 2011 Oscars which will be held on February 27th, 2011 at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, CA. This is not a list of who I think deserves to win, but rather a list of who I think will win the awards. Some of them are a shot-in-the-dark such as the sound, make-up and short film categories but I included my best guesses on them.

See the full list of nominations

If my predictions hold true, The Social Network would walk away with the most awards with six, followed by Inception with four comprised mostly of the technical awards. With the strong line-up of films this year, I think you will see a more spread out list of winners. I predict Black Swan, True Grit and 127 Hours to each receive one award.
